On Tuesday, April 28, 2015- we took another Day Ride. We headed out to Crossville, TN to check out the Military Memorial Museum.
With a cool start on a clear day, we wore our full leathers (jacket and chaps).
Jeff kicks off our day in this short video:
We rode north on Broadway to Halls, then took Norris Freeway to the Norris Dam.
After snapping a few photos, we headed down to Rocky Top and stopped at Weigels for fuel and a snack.
From Rocky Top we rode north to Caryville, then took old 63 north to 63 and into Huntsville. In Huntsville we rode north on 456 to Oneida.
In Oneida, we took 297 west which runs through the Big South Fork Recreation Area.
From the Big South Fork we took 154 into downtown Jamestown. From Jamestown, we rode south on 27 into Clark Range where we stopped at the Cumberland Mountain General Store.
From Clark Range we continued south on 27 into Crossville where we stopped at Sisters Restaurant for lunch.
The staff at Sisters gets a huge thumbs up as well. We plan to return next time we are in Crossville.
After lunch we rode downtown (just a couple of blocks from Sisters) to the Military Memorial Museum housed in the oldest building in Crossville.
After our visit, we left Crossville riding through Fairfield Glade only to run out of road at Smith Mountain.
We turned around, rode back through Fairfield Glade, and took 70 east to Rockwood.
Then we rode through Kingston, Lenoir City and finally back to Knoxville.
We got back home at 6:45pm and our total ride was 242 miles.
We wrap up the day in this video:
